CEBU CITY – In preparation for the looming El Niño phenomenon, the Department of Agriculture in Central Visayas (DA-7) has reactivated the “Bantay Peste” Brigades (BPB) in the region.

Agriculture Regional Crop Center chief, Dr. Bienvenido Acabal Jr. said Wednesday they have already sent advisories to the different municipal agricultural offices (MAO) in Central Visayas to reactivate their BPBs as pests usually make their attacks during the El Niño.

“These pests become popular during El Niño, that’s why we already advised the MAOs last December to reactivate their ‘Bantay Peste’ Brigades and start surveillance or monitoring in their respective areas, especially those with history of pest attacks,” Acabal said in Cebuano during the Kapihan sa PIA (Philippine Information Agency) forum here.
